, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the results already by the people that have come out early and that's why the campaigns spent so much time on getting out the vote early, this ground game on these early votes. >> pelley: we'll come back to you early and often. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. john is going to be showing us the various ways that the candidates can get to the 270 electoral votes necessary to twin presidency. john? >> well, first, scott, let's follow up on what bob was saying. we're going to dispatch with 41 of the states, the majority of the country cbs estimates based on the polling that those states are either going to go to barack obama or to mitt romney. that gives barack obama a start where he's likely to get 237 electoral votes, mitt romney is likely to get 191 electoral votes. so here we are at the beginning of the evening, nothing has been called, it's all possibility. so what is the easiest past for each candidate to get to that
, invested time, invested money, did not pick up the state. what's important is virginia, florida and ohio. mike, you've got some inside dope on virginia and florida in particular. >> yeah. just to set the stage for the drama of the next hour or so, the mitt romney math starts in florida, virginia, then moves on to ohio. from the war rooms of both campaigns, virginia is -- [inaudible] obama. now, the states are very close in the actual count, and we're trying to be clear here on our coverage about when a state is actually called and what the campaigns are doing, but we're also trying to pull back the curtain a little bit for you on what the campaigns are thinking. before the calls are made, what we're hearing. and just to give you a sense of what the mood is among republicans tonight, one of the top republicans in the country just e-mailed me talking about 2014, says there's another race in two years. so that tells you that the top republicans are hearing things from various states that aren't encouraging. florida, where the romney math starts, 50/50. hundreds of votes out of millions cast
got out to vote. the right thing happened. we had a big election day. >> boy did they ever in florida. that was darlene jones from wftv trying to get an answer from rick scott about this. voters stuck in line for eight hours and more in polling places around the state of florida after governor scott cut the days for early voting and refused to add any of them back when the lines were that long. he says it all worked fine. the right thing happened. florida officials say the lines pop upmostly in big cities with diverse population. they say that as if that's self-explanatory in terms of why you have long lines. but florida officials have you been to l.a.? really big city. we have been getting letters from people who vote in california where they opened tons and tons of polling places that serve much smaller groups of voters than the way you dole with it in florida. in california they vote at the nep tune society. they vote in their neighbor's garage. they voted at headquarters of the venice beach lifeguards. californians do not do is stand in line and wait eight hours to vote. after the
we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we planned for, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same percent of the electorate as in 2008. we got 65% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, voting rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battleground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino vote since 1996. in florida increase from 14% in 2008 to 17% in 2012. we increased our vote share in florida
, already in the race, which has been called in favor of the president. >> all right. florida, take a look there. this is another race that was considered to be very, very important for both candidates. we have been following all along, ohio and now florida. still too close to call, as you can see. very, very close. we will let you know how that goes. >> just a difference of 65,000 votes there. and there is a level at which there would be an automatic recall. so we will keep an eye on the difference number for you throughout the early morning now. >> as exciting as it is to have gregg and me here with you at this hour, we wouldn't just give you us. we have a super panel. you are going to want to stick around the next couple of hours. joining us on the set, pollster for president cartedder is here and the former adviser to the democratic new jersey frank lautenberg and fox news analyst. and the bureau chief with talk radio news service. i can tell you from hanging out in the green room, they are all fired up. should we get startd? >> let's do it. pat, let me can you, this was predicted to b
, florida. >> caller: good morning stephanie. how are you. >> stephanie: good, go ahead. >> caller: i love you. you have the most refreshing person we have needed a show like this forever. i hate all of these episodes. [ wand music ] >> caller: that just drag out the non-truth. you got me hooked, girl, you're awesome. >> stephanie: you get me. >> caller: why a clip of ben stein telling about the newscast of what we have to do. he says, i want it leave now i got to tell you we'll have to raise those taxes on the higher--why doesn't anybody play that clip. >> stephanie: bill kristol. >> no, ben stein said it yesterday. he said it a while ago. >> stephanie: i think look, a lot of republicans are dusting themselves off and-- >> we played that clip. >> stephanie: right, we did. >> i think sheldon adelson will want some of ben stein's money at this point. [ laughing ] >> stephanie: let's go it tony in north carolina. hi stone tony, welcome. >> caller: hi, stephanie i turned over to the glenn beck station, and he said the truth lives here. i said, the real truth lives with stephanie miller. >> st
on the wealthy. former florida governor jeb bush is gathering policy experts and dedication leader's fourth annual education summit. we covered yesterday's events pick. that's where we begin. mr. bush says the unions are barriers to better schools. how would you fix your school system? we want to get your take on it. also, send us a tweet, post your comments on facebook, or send us an e-mail. we begin with the "washington times headline" -- we want to show you what the former florida governor had to say at yesterday's event. [video clip] >> we need to have a teacher evaluation system that is based on teachers being professionals and not part of some collective trade union bargaining process. we have a system to reward teachers based on an industrial and unionized model that is completely inappropriate for the 21st century, completely inappropriate. there are incredibly fine teachers that get paid less even though they are doing the lord's work consistently over time and there are teachers that are mediocre that get paid more because they have been there longer. long did it is not the deter
was that they said they served him poorly. they gave him information that, especially in florida, they thought they had it and they didn't. so i think there will be a lot of monday morning quarterbacking. bottom line, campaign was certainly not good enough to win anything. hardly anything. today they concedeed florida. obama goes to re-election with 332 electoral votes, extremely decisive. he has a lot of clout. >> greg: the campaign is like buying a printer at staples. you know looks good in the box. slow to get started. once it started going it was pretty good. then near the end it got wiped out by hurricane sandy. >> eric: leave here, quickly, a long time fast you have watched the show, months ago i recommended eric bernstein who ran the campaign to step aside. after that, the obama camp rolling out of -- >> bob: would have made no difference. >> eric: we want to leigh you with dennis miller on o'reilly last night. things are so tough, so tough, miller had to make changes already. listen. >> i just want to tell you, give you the final word. this is no longer silk. my pocket squares are now
vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70,000 votes. i think that reveals the politics with the cuban-american community may be changing significantly. again, this probably should not have come as a great surprise or shock to people following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement from obama with cuba. from obama point of view, i think there has been some steps made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans and making travel more flexible. there's a sense not much has changed from the latin perspective. perhaps in the second term, there may be more of a change moving forward. on this issue, we also have to look carefully at the composition of the new congress and some of the pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress that held important positions that will no longer be holding them in the next couple of years and the senator from texas, also a cuban-american. congress obviously will be critical in this whole issue, but
. victor is on the phone from florida on the independent line. caller: good morning. host: how are you feeling? caller: the radiation is not my kind of therapy, believe me. i want to wish everybody a happy veterans day. i mean it from the soul, not the words that come out of tv. host: when did you serve? caller: from 1948 until 1972. my comment is on the deficit. all the parties have reasons for what is causing the deficit. most of americans know that -- i have cancer, yes. a tumor. it will cost the american tax payers over half a million dollars just for a what i will be going through on chemotherapy and radiation. a few years back, i found that i had implants that cost $285,000. they want to charge me $1,285 for that. i wrote to the state attorney's office to justify that amount of money. nobody answered my question outside of the state attorney's office. that upset me. so i sat down. what would be the best thing that i could do, which i wrote to obama, i wrote to congress, i wrote to all in medicare -- how to solve this health care problem we have? that is the biggest part of the de
's got to stop. they're all doing it. and it's just major corruption. host: fran, jacksonville, florida. yes, we're listening. caller: oh, thank you. i was calling, wanted to know if i heard that excerpt from the wall street journal article correctly, that the president might be relenting on his pledge to not sign anything that didn't have that increase with the upper 1%. host: well, i think it's a little more nuanced than that. it says here again, here's the headline. obama is flexible of highest tax rates. and what it says is that it's not so much that he won't sign anything, it's more of how high the tax rates would go. so does that -- how do you see that? how do you reed that? caller: i would really be disappointed in that, because he's been fighting for that since the beginning. he relented a few years ago in order to save the unemployment insurance for the unemployed people and some other stipulations that were being held hostage by the g.o.p. but he doesn't have to do that any more. and right after he did that, they called that his tax breaks for the wealthy. and he absolutely di
that and does not decide to go for the budget, it will probably be bill nelson from florida who just won reelection. but here is my conspiracy- minded way is going on -- let's say ron wind and decided he really wanted budget and not energy, who would be chairman? mary landrieu -- a complete nightmare for the democrats -- coming from an oil-producing state she is really not in line with most of the party on the issues. i had a conversation with a democratic aide not to long ago where i basically said, so, you guys will do everything you can to make sure it does not happen, right? even if patty murray decides not to take budget, you r will ron widen stay there -- their answer was, we do not think we will get to that point. which is estimated will do everything they can to prevent mary landrieu from taking the gavel. but she is close. and any other on the republican side. is the republican leadership wincing at the thought about new ranking republican members doing damage to the agenda? chuck grassley, installed judiciary, and orrin hatch? >> i think both of them have established their bona
in on ohio, florida and virginia and i am chairman of the campaign and we intend to take those swing states. >> gretchen: you need a certain number of electorial vote to win the presidency. the projection is obama 290 and obama 248 and popular vote romney would win. if that happens again and having just happened in the last decade, wouldn't there be hysteria about changing the system? >> i think some people would gripe. that happened in the bush-gore election. but you know what, we republicans and most independents play by the rules and everyone knew the rules going into the presidential election electtoral map matters most. and i don't think that i would certainly hope that there would not be a lot of people whining out there. what is brewing in america is going to be enough and plenty to lift mitt romney up . >> gretchen: being what else was brewing was hurricane sandy. what will the be of the storm and people getting out to vote or do you think it will change the way in which people vote? >> i think it possibly could. you look at common wealth of virginia our great governor did a terrifi
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
florida detectives say that they blocked. bill: that is an amazing story there. also press president obama his cabinet is ready for a shakeup after the whole libya mess. the president said to be considering you susan rice to replace hillary clinton. why john mccain says he wants to talk to rice, hear her out and why he says she is not the problem. >> i give everyone the benefit of explain their position, and the actions that they took, and i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her.

's also striking that i think president obama won almost half the cuban vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70 # ,000 votes, and which, i think, reveals that the politics within the community may be changing significantly. again, this probably shouldn't have come as a great surprise or shock to those following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement and opening from the obama -- with cuba from the obama administration's point of view, i think, there's been important steps that were made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans making travel more flexible, but from the latin american perspective, there's a sense not much changed, and there's a hope that perhaps in the second term there may be more of a change moving forward. on the issue as well, we'd have to look carefully at the composition of the congress and pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress with important positions no longer homing them in the next couple o

they can have the future. thank you. >> to gary in florida. >> i voted for obama and i see everything that has been going on. i am disabled. this obamacare thing is hitting me. it has made a difference in my prescriptions. it has made a difference in the care that i received. the thing that i see most, i grew up and i was a military brat. obama was kind of vacant. it to kim 50 days to react. he did not want help from other countries to take care of the gulf coast. it hit florida really hard. then that you had all the thing in libya and he decided to take off and go to vegas the next day. there's a lot of speculation about where they in the situation watching it and i think he took advantage of sandy -- and i'm not saying that in a sarcastic manner. he stood up and it finally acted like a president but a week before the election? where was he when everything else was going on that he should have been present and then the president and took care of things. shown as he was commander-in- chief rather than just sitting around and playing basketball and going on vacations. >> thank you. nex
